Child Care Program

Starting May 26, 2020, Champions will be offering a school-age child care program at Bay Lane Elementary. The Champions’ Child Care program will give students a safe space to explore their interests while also following the new health and safety guidelines. As a bonus, space will also be provided for students participating in virtual learning.


Enrollment begins May 18, 2020. In order for the program to run, Champions requires a minimum of fifty (50) families. Program hours and rates can be found here. With seats going fast, visit Champion Child Care’s website (www.discoverchampions.com) to enroll your child today! If you have any questions, or would like to receive further information, contact Champions’ Area Manager, Sam Kwasniewicz, (skwasniewicz@discoverchampions.com).

Parent Resources

Make sure to review the Parent FAQ document frequently where you will find answers to the most commonly asked questions during this time. Updates will be highlighted in blue throughout the upcoming weeks. Along with the Parent FAQ document, our student services staff have created a presentation to provide resources on how to help your children cope with mental health. You will find fact sheets as well as age specific information in the presentation.
